Use iCloud Music Features

Apple has two different services—iTunes Match and Apple Music—that enable you to sync music to the cloud and share it across your devices, among other capabilities.

The two services have a simple relationship: all the capabilities of iTunes Match are incorporated into Apple Music, which includes many more features. Thus, if you subscribe to Apple Music, iTunes Match becomes irrelevant to you.

In this chapter I help you understand the differences between the two services and decide whether either works for you. I also walk you through setting up and using iTunes Match—but not Apple Music, because Apple Music isn’t part of iCloud.
